    Pedants, imagine how much more relaxed your life would be if artificial intelligence automatically corrected grammar mistake's in online forum and social network posts.

    Never again would you explode with frustration and anger over misplaced apostrophe's, commas full stop's and exclamation! marks! The faults could be fixed up by machine-learning software, and your soul would be soothed.

    Software, you say? Yes, software of the kind built by Mengyi Shan, a mathematics student at Harvey Mudd College in California, USA. She trained recurrent neural networks to restore missing punctuation in text. At the moment, it can only deal with commas and full stops, the most common and easiest of English's punctuation marks.

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

    I don't think it's that people are misspelling "'ve". They seem to be consciously using the word "of". I've heard it spoken like that many times, so it can't be a spelling error.
